About Me and Photography

In 1994 the magic of the darkroom touched my heart at the time when a good friend introduced me to the world of analogue photography. My path with and to photography began.

I finished a school for design & photography in 2000 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Since then I exhibited in numerous individual and group exhibitions. I graduated in 2008/2010 in philosophy (with a thesis entitled “The Role and Importance of Photography in Conceptual Arts”) and German studies (Literature and Film: Comparative Study of narrative models). In 2012 I was employed in a digital company in Vienna, Austria as food photographer and content manager.

Since 2018 I have been working as a freelance photographer, artist, and life explorer, mainly focusing on photography, however since then my path unfolded in many other areas and projects.
